Newspaper and magazine distribution
Every night during the nightly miracle we receive around 5.2 million newspapers. These are added to 2.6 million magazines and sorted into deliveries to be made in the early hours of the morning to more than 25,000 retail customers throughout the British Isles. Our fleet travels over 45 million miles each year. As well as delivering the news we also collect the retailers’ unsold copy, process these back and arrange recycling.
Menzies Marketing Services is a group of companies bringing together experts in field marketing, category management, travel, news and digital distribution, to close the gap between businesses and their consumers, mixing services to help bring product to the consumer. Our portfolio of services ranges from face to face marketing on city streets to maximising category sales in the country’s leading retailers. We can get content onto consumers’ hand-held devices or distribute products in city streets and to major stakeholders.
